Charitable Efforts In Ballantyne

How does Ballantyne give back to the community?

Bissell encourages tenants of Ballantyne Corporate Park to get involved in the community! With annual blood, food and school supplies drives, there are many ways to give back to your local community. There are also many other charitable events in the Park — read more about annual events in Ballantyne on the Annual Events page!


Ballantyne Corporate Park Charitable Efforts Results

Color the Park 2015

Thank you for your donations to the eighth annual Color the Park marker drive benefiting Classroom Central! Your generous support helped us collect a total of 20,000 coloring supplies (including packs of markers, colored pencils and crayons), 600 miscellaneous school supplies and more than $4,000 in monetary donations. Due to Classroom Central's ability to transform every dollar into five dollars worth of essential classroom tools, the collective impact of BCP's generosity is over 41,000 school supplies into the hands of students in need! 

Special thank you to all of the Team Captains from around the Park who did an excellent job coordinating collection efforts. Way to go, Ballantyne Corporate Park!
